Wadi Rum - A Jeep and Camel Ride through the Desert where Moses Wandered
Wadi Rum is located in southern Jordan and a place where Song For Israel visits on our annual tours. As we pass the mountain that was filmed in the movie, Lawrence of Arabia, we take the jeep ride into the wilderness where Moses led the children of Israel.
This part of the desert has likely not changed much since the days of Moses, except for a few Bedouin camps scattered here and there. This desert is made up of sandstone and granite rock with sand dunes.
After the jeep ride, we take a camel caravan -- and picture ourselves making this journey for forty years.
No one can be sure of exact locations for some biblical events, as the borders of Jordan have changed many times. However, we know from the book of Exodus that Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian. The path that Moses took in the desert led them through Edom and up through Moab. The scenery doesn't change much at all.
